  GANGOTRI - GANGOTRI TEMPLE

Gangotri, the source of the highly venerated Ganga embodies many a superior virtue, a grandeur niche and a wider canvas of enviable character. The water gushing out from the Himalayas at the place, where Bhagiratha did penance is actually the very same water that flowed down from the Kamandal of Brahma, used to washing the feet of Srimannaryana, when he measured the world with the gargantuan feet during his Vamanavatar, incarnated to send Bali Chakravarthi to nether world. And it was let fall from the Maheswara's jata. So, before descent to the mortal world, the water has pious associations with the Trio. A deep peep is a necessity at this stage.

At the soulful prayers of Mrikandu Maharshi, Lord Srimannarayana gave to the sage, the darsan of the self same cosmic form, he assumed to measure the universes he got from Bali Chakravarthi as gift. So enchanting and gigantic was the form that Brahma made abhishekam to his enormous feet with water from his Kamandal. Its flow from heaven to earthy was stopped by Siva by arresting it in his jata.
